dangermousie: (SEI: Govinda Shannon kneel)
ETA: [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, I just bought first ten volumes of Basara.

I am feeling better, thanks everybody.

I finally caved and got Little Fairy which is a wuxia/fantasy/fairy-tale Chinese drama about a mortal man falling in love with a goddess who is temporarily banished from heaven. I was dubious as to whether to get it, despite finding Ariel Lin adorable as a button and having nothing against Hu Ge (the male lead, I had no opinion on him as I've never seen him in anything). I am not big on fantasy in dramas, incredible wuxia jumps being about the most I can usually tolerate. However, tricksy [livejournal.com profile] calixa lured me in by promising manpain. Lots of manpain, and torture/slavery/attempted suicide/screams of despair (I take it her family isn't keen on him).

Yay. Let's see how it goes.

Oh and a bunch of scans and vids.

Here are one of my favorite secondary OTPs of Fruits Basket, the hyper-dramatic, crazily oblivious Ayame (think a grown up Tamaki) and Mine, his shop assistant. They run an 'exotic clothes' stoer together. If they have any kids, I bet they will rebel by being stodgy accountants:



Little scene the above scan is from )

I need to find the scans with the semi-hugging.

Here are some Capital Scandal vids. Hats, angst, dancing!

Vids )

And after seeing Partner yesterday, which deserves its own post, as I laughed so hard I almost died, here are some Govinda vids.

dangermousie: (SEI: John and Vidya run)
For some weird reason, the movie theater I went to decided to chop off the very beginning of the movie (probably to save time). While I can live without seeing the censor's certificate and even the movie's title, it was rather odd to go straight into the song already in progress. Plus, missing precious minutes of John and Vidya cuteness should be considered a certifiable offense.

Also, our print died during climax and they had to restart it. Heh. I was probably less upset about either of these because:

a. I will have a DVD soon
b. The audience was fun (at one critical point, a little kid piped up, imitating Govinda's "I love you" ROFL)
c. I still love the movie entirely too much not to be giddy to see it in any form.

My map is making me feel all cosmopolitan. I've apparently had visitors not just from US, Canada and the UK, but also Australia, New Zealand, Brasil, Poland, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Phillipines, Germany, Spain, Sweden, India, Finland, Denmark, France and etc. Yay. Am impressive world-renown author of popular lj. Or not and am delusional geek. You pick :D

In other news, it's almost Friday which means it's almost Hana Yori Dango 2 time, which means I have an almost Pavlovian reaction. Sad but true. And on that note, full of adorableness, I bring you two awesome scans from the upcoming ep. Not very spoilery IMO, but your mileage may vary (from a magazine).

Go for Hanadan cuteness behind cut )

In other gorgeous Asian people being gorgeous news (that really should be a tag in my LJ lately), I bring you some totally awesome pictures from the launch for Salaam-e-Ishq. There are some gorgeous stars, some gorgeous clothes (and some horrible clothes) and a lot of eye candy. What's not to like. It's like a Hollywood launch only with hot people.

John Abraham (Ashu in SeI). I love the outfit, but he clearly was in such a hurry he forgot to put on a shirt:



A lot of pictures of hotness and oddness )

I am in love. The kind of love where you want to grab your friends (and sometimes even unlucky acquaintances) and tell them about how great this movie you just saw was, and try to talk them into seeing it with you, and sort of make little collages in your head and hunt youtube for music clips.

Total, giddy, ‘this is why I love Bollywood’ love.

I don't remember the last time that time flew by so fast at the movies (even some movies which are better than SeI). Me and [livejournal.com profile] smartylibrarian looked at each other during intermission and went 'already?' and the same feeling was there at the end of the movie. This movie had crazy pace by Bollywood standards because even though it was so long, it had all those stories. I actually loved the switches between the stories as not only did it keep each story from being too drawn out (I don't think any of them could have sustained a three hour movie) but it kept one from being bogged down in one emotion. 'Had a bit of the angst with John and Vidya? Well, don't get antsy, here is some cross-cultural comedy and sweetness with Govinda and Shannon or madcap swoony screwball with Salman and Priyanka.'

This movie didn't have to work hard to be better than Love Actually for me (I am one of ten people on the world who doesn't care for LA) but this actually was about 17 times better. I loved it and plan to see it again.

Lengthy, gushy, and spoilery )

I confess.

My most anticipated movie? Is Bollywood's Salaam-e-Ishq a very loose interpretation/riff on Love Actually (it borrows the theme of interconnected love stories, but except for one of them, the stories are very different).

I am going to see it the coming weekend with [livejournal.com profile] smartylibrarian, so I bring you a picspam of the incredibly pretty people starring in it. For previous picspams of the movie, go here, here, and here. In fact, since I did do general picspams before, these are picspams of the three stories I am most interested in. (1) Kkamini and Rahul (Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan). Kkamini is an ambitious Bollywood item girl (a girl who dances a sexy number in movies) who wants to be a star and Rahul is the man who muddies her plans in a madcap fashion. (2)Tehzeeb and Ashutosh (Vidya Balan and John Abraham), an inter-religion newly married, professional couple (she's a Muslim, he's a Hindu) who face tragedy (I know spoilers and am looking forward to this story the most). (3) And Raju and Stephanie (Govinda and Shanon Esra), a taxi driver who dreams of a 'blonde girl' getting into his cab one of these days and falling in love and a blonde foreigner who came in search of her scummy boyfriend.
